"Stephen Coonts returns with his most compelling novel to date. All the elements of the espionage thriller are in place: angry terrorists, Russian dissidents, a captivating secret agent, and, yes, the mysterious woman he falls for, who may have connections with the enemy. Only a gifted performer could bring such an incredible story to life and, equally important, make it believable. Dennis Boutsikaris is the right man for the job. He provides realistic accents for the colorful characters that abound. Furthermore, he knows exactly when to ratchet up the tension and bring listeners to the edge of their seats. Ultimately, Boutsikaris makes the unbelievable seem like breaking news. Incredible! L.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
